Our Daggers correspondent George Sessions will be providing player ratings for games this season.

Dagenham & Redbridge conceded three minutes from time to draw 1-1 with Cheltenham yesterday, after Jamie Cureton had given them the lead midway through the second half.

Check out our scores below and let us know if you agree.

Mark Cousins (8) – An excellent display from the Daggers keeper, he made numerous saves from John Marquis and was unlucky not to keep a clean sheet. Man of the match.

Damian Batt (6) – A determined display by the right-back, although he was caught out a couple of times in the first half.

Brian Saah (7) – Solid display and made one superb block in the second half when Daggers were under intense pressure.

Matt Patridge (7) – Good showing from the youngster, after making an early mistake he settled well and was resolute throughout.

Nathan Green (7) – Again did a job at left-back, only once got beaten by his opposite number and was efficient with passing.

Ashley Chambers (6) – Wasteful from set pieces but an excellent first half run nearly brought about a goal for his team. Worked tirelessly.

Luke Howell (6) – Struggled to get on the ball but remained disciplined and tried to support Daggers attacks as best he could.

Abu Ogogo – (7) – A typically energetic performance from the captain and put in several crunching challenges.

Joss Labadie – (7) – Came into the side and delivered a hard-working performance, booked in first half but very disciplined position wise.

George Porter (6) – Hard-working display but failed to influence the game too much.

Jamie Cureton (7) – Exploded into life when put through on goal and didn’t disappoint. Isolated for large parts of the game but clinical when given a chance.

Substitutes:

Ashley Hemmings, for Porter 52, (6) – A wonderful reverse pass for Cureton’s opener but wasted good free kick opportunity towards the end.

Jack Connors, for Chambers 85.

Christian Doidge, for Cureton 86.

Not used: O’Brien, Doe, Goldberg, Yusuff.
